September 14, 2012

Lady Gaga launched her Fame fragrance at New York's Guggenheim Museum last nigth with an elaborate masquerade ball. The party featured an army of shirtless, suspendered men lining a passageway into a dark, cavernous room with an asymmetrical dome situated in the middle, from which Gaga later emerged, according to Rolling Stone. Famed cinematographer Steven Klein took the stage and announced the unveiling of his "Fame" short film, which showed Gaga as mountainous creature, scaled by tiny men one minute, toting a gun in an ink-filled bathtub the next, and leading a futuristic army throughout. She shoots the gun and the inky "Fame" fragrance explodes from a million orifices, including Gaga's own eyes and mouth. Watch the video below:


Showbiz411.com confirms rumors that Adele has been tapped to record the theme song to the new James Bond film Skyfall. The song is reportedly also called "Skyfall." It is unknown when the song will be released but the film Skyfall will be in theaters in the U.S. on November 9.

Billy Corgan attended the grand opening yesterday of Madame ZuZu's, his own tea house that he opened in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park. A handful of friends and fans were on hand to help him celebrate the occasion and watch him play a six-song acoustic set of Smashing Pumpkins songs. Corgan mixed newer material like "Celestials" and "Song for a Son" with oldies like "In the Arms of Sleep" and "Today," according to RollingStone.com. "I want it to be a social hub that's interactive. You're trying to draw in different people from different walks of life. We want a dynamic in there. We don't want a passive space," Corgan said of his new tea shop. "There are just those Tuesday nights where it's like, rather than watch a baseball game on TV, I'd love to come down and hear somebody talk about homeopathy or archeology or see somebody's art show. And to have it right here in the community, I think was very attractive to me."

Demi Lovato is set to present at Clear Channel's iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas next week. The X Factor judge will be on hand for the festivities on September 21, where she will join fellow presenters Britney Spears and Olympian Ryan Lochte as well as Ryan Seacrest, according to MTV News.
